Sentiments Frames | By Laurie Schmidlin

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m sharing a quick and easy way to create a sentiment frame.  This simple technique can be used on almost any card!

First, I have to say that the new Peony Bloom layering die set is one of the prettiest that I have seen!  As soon as I saw it I was smitten!  While playing around with it I started thinking about different ways to add sentiments.  I didn’t want to cover up any of the flowers so I came up with the idea of stamping around the edges.

The Dragonfly Greetings stamp set is full of sentiments that are perfect for this technique!  I chose to use the Thank You sentiment.  I started by lightly penciling in lines 1/4″ from the edges on all four sides.  I then stamped the sentiment repeatedly, using the pencil marks as a guideline to stamp.  Don’t worry if your sentiment goes off of the page at the corners as this will be covered up with the layering dies.

One tip that can save you some time and frustration is to make sure your ink is completely dry before going on to the next step.  Trust me.  Ha!

After the ink was dry, I erased all of the pencil marks using a high quality eraser.

After assembling the three Peony Bloom layers (I used all three on my card), I adhered it to the white sentiment stamped layer.  For embellishment, I added some decorative jewels to the center of the flowers.

I hope you get a chance to try this out!

Thanks for stopping by!
